Books without words inside.


"Those us out there who use Moleskine, we do have an attachment to
them — in front of us stands a finite number of lines to trace the
circles of our own stories. A sense of ownership of the words written
within, even though the book itself is just another product in the

    For larger notebooks, there are some Barnes and Noble leather ones that I love.
